Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Timothy Dalton
When his stellar job performance makes fellow officers look bad, a London cop (Pegg) is transferred to a tiny burg, where his biggest challenge seems to be capturing a local farmer’s runaway swan—until the bloody corpses start turning up.
Fuzz reteams writer-star Pegg and writer-director Edgar Wright, the duo behind 2004’s hilarious zombie parody Shaun of the Dead. Their new movie affectionately satirizes British films trafficking in small-town whimsy and oversize Hollywood action flicks, resulting in big laughs with guns ablazing. (R)
